• Drive-thru screening will be conducted from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. every day at Pomerene Hospital via a mobile care unit;

• Screenings will be performed by clinical staff with patients remaining in their vehicles; Please bring a photo identification and insurance cards and remain in your vehicle unless instructed otherwise;

• If screened patients are recommended for further testing, these patients will be directed to a central location and isolated from other patients for testing to be administered

During these hours, you may experience higher than usual traffic congestion around the hospital. Please use caution when crossing driveways and in parking areas.
